I met twenty-one-year-old Zitah Jimoi a few years ago while working in Kenya, right before I began to work for Apogee’s philanthropic arm. Zitah was nineteen at the time. I met her while visiting a few NGOs in Kibera, the most populated informal settlement in East Africa. Zitah had just been awarded the title of “Miss Kibera,” an honor she received after giving a speech about what she believes can be done within Kibera to address some of the community’s most pressing needs. The slums of Kibera, just five kilometers southwest of the City Center, Nairobi, are home to more than one fourth of Nairobi’s population, over one million people.
A couple of years ago, Rancho de Los Niños orphanage was in danger of closing down due to the lack of funding to properly care for the children. Jorge and Ely Fonseca, who were both raised in the orphanage, took on the challenge of running the orphanage and becoming the new directors.
